Ep102. How Apple Cider Vinegar Transformed My Life (and became my business) with Pip Summerville, Founder Tonik


In Episode 102 of The Monica Kade Podcast, I sat down with Pip Summerville; the Founder and Creative Director of Tonik, an all-natural health capsule company, with a no-fluff approach to feeling good. Tonik was founded in 2016 by pip from the desire to make natural health supplements easier and more convenient for the health conscious consumer—but first and foremost it was the solution to a personal problem. With the help of her pharmacist father, Glenn, they went on to create the much loved Tonik brand.
